My fifteen month only says dada and mama. She's very vocal, just not speaking words.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. If he understands you and can take direction, then he understands fine. Einstein didn't talk until he was 2 years old, but I don't think anyone can say there was something wrong with his mind. :-) Kids accomplish different things at different times

Unless you suspect your boy has a hearing problem (in which case, he might not respond if you talk to him), he'll get around to talking when he's ready.

My doctor said there is nothing to worry about as long as they are communicating their wants like pointing and no etc.

your not alone. My 15 month old says dada & sometimes mama. He does a lot of pointing though. Does she at least point. I wouldn't worry. By 2, she will be exploding with words, it will seem like it happened overnight.

My 15 month old really only says dada. But he can sign "more", "eat" and "milk" so the doctor isn't worried.

othing to worry about. My 14 months son can only say mama, papa, take, alleluyah and alot of other things we cant understand. These children do things at their own pace, so give it time.

My son very rarely will say momma or dadda. The only word he really says all the time is, "go, go, go." Haha! I wouldn't worry too much. My three year old is just now starting to speak in 4-5 word sentences. He hardly did two word sentences at two. If you are worried about it, just talk to your doctor. We put my son in speech therapy at two and a half because we were worried.

It could be that he is just taking in all the different languages in your home and trying to figure out what he's suppose to say. One day he may just totally surprise you and start saying tons of words at once! It's good that he'll be learning other languages. Just remember every kid learns differently. If he understands a lot of what you say, then you really shouldn't worry. :o)

We just went for our 15 month well visit on Monday, and the doctor just said 4 words at this point. I wouldn't be worried.

aww my son only knows how to point to his belly when you ask where it is i'm still working on on ears head and hands etc... i just want to think why he is not speaking more is because my house is a tri-lingual (3 languages) home and maybe its throwing him off a little bit???

My 14 month old doesn't say any words. He occasionally signs "milk", or "please", but no verbal words.

[deleted account]

Mine little guy says Mama, Daddy, Jackie (which sounds a lot like daddy) and please. My daughter (6) really didn't start saying lots of words until age 2 and sentences old 2.

My 14 month old only says a couple words too. Don't worry. He's still young. He'll speak soon enough.

My daughter doesn't really speak either. She knows a lot of words so if you ask her where her belly, eyes, mouth, hair is she will point to them so I'm not worried about her hearing. I also realize all babies are different, her 5 year old brother was speaking in complete sentences by now so I'm going to enjoy this quiet time with my daughter because it's true once they start talking there is no going back!
